I was fortunate enough to grow up in a home where majority in the household love math. I love math so much. I love numbers and I love solving math problems. I find something in there that constantly challenges myself, intellectually.
Do I need help with math? I’m not a nerdy type of guy and I’m not a genius but I don’t have problems with math, that’s for sure. I must admit though, that I occasionally seek help from someone else who might have good answers to the problems which have befuddled me for minutes or even hours without getting them right. Yes, I do my math sometimes with the help of someone else. That’s a natural course of learning. You can’t always have the right answer to every problem. You don’t study a thing that you already know, do you? You study something that you still don’t know so that you will learn and subsequently gain knowledge.
Math should be a very interesting subject to all students. Yes, there are factors that hinder students to appreciate the subject. Not because they find it hard to learn but because they are scared of numbers which seem intimidating. That scare might have originated from their teachers who failed to embody the idea of math in our day-to-day life. I solve my math problems with enthusiasm and due diligence. Because in math, sometimes, you need to think a lot. And that’s the beauty of it. It shouldn’t discourage students to study the subject though.
Math shouldn’t be a chore. It should be an integral part of our school life. Whenever I do my math, I see to it that I have enough time to spare for my other subjects or anything else for that matter.
